Baylor Automated Sequencing Workshop

Baylor College of Medicine will hold a workshop June 23-25 on state-of-the-art automated DNA sequencing techniques. Participants are limited to ten experienced scientists, who will use fluorescent DNA sequencing instruments for large-scale and diagnostic DNA sequencing at a core facility. Topics will include sequencing by polymerase chain reaction for mutation detection and human immunodeficiency virus characterization. Semiautomated template preparation, robotic DNA sequencing (Beckman Biomeck and ABI Catalyst systems), data management and analysis, and overall core lab organization will also be covered. Tuition of $750 includes accommodations. Application deadline: June 1.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
